Dink's Song
by Jeff Buckley



Oh yeah, yeah, baby...scatting....oh yeah
If I had wings, like Noah's dove,
I'd fly a river to the one I love.
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

If I met your man and he was long and tall
I'd heave his body like a cannon ball
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

One evening it was drizzlin' rain
and in my heart, I felt an aching pain
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

As you wore, wore your apron low
Gonna keep you, away from my door
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

And your apron is straight up
to your chin. I cross your door, but
I never come in
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

And the woman I love, I crave to see
She lives out in the country, and I
know she won't lie to me
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Ah... she's gone, and no she won't come back
She took the last nickel out of my savings sack
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

And I went to the mountain, looked as far
as my eye could see. Some other man
got my woman, and I know some blues
got me. oh yeah, yeah
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

And I found her letter, on the old maple tree
She says, I'm gonna get you for all the things
you did to me.
Oh yeah, baby, baby
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

Now if a man is a cheater, he's having
himself a time, but he'll never keep
his woman cause he just don't know
his mind. His mind, mind, mind, mind
Fare thee well, my honey, oh yeah

Money are you there, lot of money here (this line is not clear)
but you can't give me money for my unborn
child, child, child, child
Fare thee well, my honey, fare thee well

When a woman gets in trouble, everybody puts her down
Looking for a good friend and no one can be found
Fare thee well
Woman never gonna change, never done no harm
Lord the nine train, take my poor baby home
Fare thee well, oh yeah
Now the woman I love ( verse is unknown)
Fare thee well, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

And her Papa is dead, Mamm's will to be
I ain't got no woman to love and care for me
Fare thee well, oh yeah, oh yeah
Fare thee well, my honey, oh my honey,
Baby, yeah, yeah, yeah
